The prevalence of gastric mucosal lesions in the thoroughbred race horse has been the subject of numerous studies. The frequency of gastric ulcer diseases in the adult horse of other sport disciplines are less well investigated. Recent data show that gastric mucosal lesions in non thoroughbred racehorses occur considerably more frequently than previously thought. Prevalences of up to 93 % in endurance horses, of up to 87 % in standardbreds, of 40 % in western horses, of 63 % in show-jumping horses, of 71 % in broodmares and of 53 % in leisure horses are reported. Since the introduction of gastroscopy in equine medicine in the 1990s, numerous scoring-systems to describe the number, the severity and the localisation of the lesions have been used. Unfortunately, no standardized scoring system is generally accepted to date. A direct comparison of results from different studies is therefore difficult. Comparison and interpretation of data is further hampered by the heterogenicity of the study populations which consist of horses of different age-groups, breeds and exercise intensity.
